Setting Out For A Sunset Cruise In Suzy – The Magic Of The Great Wicomico

Sunset SuzyLast night, after a wonderful day of eating and catching up with the normalcy of everyday life, we set out for an amazing sunset cruise. Here in Reedville Virginia the Sunsets over the past few days have been beyond amazing. We were all at Jimmy’s house for dinner and the gang all piled into Suzy for the run. I will let the pictures do the talking.

    Yes last night was a night to remember. Its funny, all of the stuff, the sand varnish stuff is all worth it in the gold light of a day ending! Mornings BTW can also be magical, but there is something special about the peace of the end of the day

    That’s exactly what the sunset on Balsam Lake, Wisconsin looked like last night. And the blue moon was even better.

Reminded my of our dog, snif, gotta pee, snif, ” OOOHHH SQURRIEL”. Or like the joke, I promise to maintain a tighter budget honey, and get my spen… oohh “BOAT PARTS”…

    You beat me to it. I read all the captions, looked at all the pictures and thought the same thing. This IS why we all do it!
